These are our GIRAUD‘s ‘standard’ barrels and can be ordered in differing sizes and shapes. They are hand-made from our own seasoned stock of staves and are very high quality. Every stage of production is quality checked to make sure that a superlative barrel is created. There are 2 different wood-mix profiles; VS and XOV.
Very Special Blend. Giraud uses a mix of wood selected from their very best forests to give a consistency and complexity of taste.
Extra Old Vintage. Giraud uses carefully selected wood that has been seasoned for a further 12 months (in addition to the standard ageing time) to give a fantastic but subtle taste profile.
